Stratton Festival Sponsorship 2018

 Festival Background

Stratton Festival is in its sixth year, and this hugely popular event is organised by Stratton St Margaret Parish Council.  Each year in July the community of Stratton St Margaret welcomes thousands from across the Parish, from Swindon and beyond.  This year our community festival is taking place on Saturday 7 July and the infamous Stratton Stroll is on Saturday 23 June.

Our programme in 2018 is diverse. The festival remains FREE for all to attend and features something for everyone to enjoy.

We anticipate over 6,000 festival goers will enjoy live music, vintage vehicles, tug of war, beer & cider, dog show, circus workshops, fun fair, community stalls, an RAF flypast and much much more…. Already booked are Drove Vets Dog Show, exciting Headliners to be announced and George Scarrotts Fun Fair. 

Stratton Stroll is on Saturday 23 June. This event takes place across the Parish in six popular pubs showcasing new and established local bands, each bring hundreds of their own fans along. There are too many acts to name but I can assure you that, with the help of local music promoters, we’ve got some good ones booked this year!
